obama again or mitt romney is probably not going to do it. this is the thing to do in speeches. we talk like we are the world's parent. the left says if we want china to say go for it on global warming or pull back on military expansionism we need to set an example. they will follow us. the republican version of this is the mean dad, right? we're going in there and we'll tell them they're grounded until they fix it. both are silly. we obviously have a strong leadership role but they are not looking at us for how to act. there is a limited amount of going out and being a shining star to the world with achieve. everyone has to say it. >> megan prings up a good point about the mean dad, softish touch mom. we have talked before on the program. there is an awkward moment in terms of foreign policy. in terms of elucidating a line in the sand, if you will, between republican foreign policy and democratic foreign policy. there doesn't seem to be a lot of daylight on fundamental issues. >> this is an important point. actually mitt romney is a bigamistry to us when it comes to foreign policy. in

line in my copy of the speech the moments when it was a period where mitt romney might say something substantive but i found it lacking. i will put the leaders of iran on notice that the u.s. and our friends and allies will prevent e them from acquiring nuclear weapons, i will deepen critical cooperation with partners in the gulf. not a lot here that isn't stuff that's already been floated. these are positions the president, i think would agree should be taken. >> if you are going to unveil ab address at this point you better have the goods. never mind next week's foreign policy debate with the president. this mitt romney needs to debate the old mitt romney as well. on each of these things he's taken the opposite position. there's an extended criticism of the president's take on syria, for instance. yet this is the same mitt romney who also said getting involved with libya would be mission creep. he opposed that in one country and now proposes it somewhere else. the point of consistent for him is israel. to pa are a phrase joe biden every foreign policy sentence has a noun, verb and

foreign policy speech that mitt romney gave yesterday. madeleine albright did not have much of anything to say -- plenty to say about it but didn't grade it to be a-level work let's hear what she had to say on a conference call yesterday -- i think we have that. >> probably a speech that to those that are not totally into foreign policy sounds pretty good, but i think it is really full of platitudes and free of substance. some of the facts, though, are just dead wrong. >> so, madeleine albright not exactly saying this was the greatest foreign policy speech ever. do you think voters -- what did you make of it and do you think voters are paying attention to foreign policy? >> i think they're starting to. i think they're going to certainly in the next -- the next debate at the end of the month. i think that it was -- lacking in nuance and that's a real problem because the world is very nuanced. we've moved from a kind of simplistic u.s. is the sort of soul super power world, incredibly multi polar, just in the middle east, and i think you've seen romney already drop the ball there. there i

, perhaps, a window into mitt romney's real world view regarding the takers and the makers. it was merely an accident. a natural result of giving too many speeches on the trail. thank goodness we finally have clarity. ben smith, interesting, mitt romney clearly that was his answer if it came up during the debate and he wasn't asked about the 47% comments by the president or the president didn't bring it up. fox news did. the question is, is this thing done? are we done hearing about the 47% thing? did obama lose the most potent weapon in his arsenal? >> of course, not. i'm sure the president's campaign will find a way to bring it back in. imagine if that had been the answer he had given at the press conference that night and also imagine if this debate mitt romney had been the guy running since the spring if this pivot had come earlier, if the conservative movement allowed him to, i think a lot of people around him people he's surrounded by in boston are not hard right conservatives, they're moderates who are nervous about the conservative wing. this new character pivoting in octob
